(Think Progress)   Catholic University claims it does not have to allow unions because of religious freedom. Guess they've never heard of Rerum Novarum, Quadragesimo Anno, Mater et Magistra, Populorum progressio, Laborem Exercens, Laborem Exercens, or Centesimus Annus   ( divider line

Cataholic: Ironic that those who argue loudest to keep the church out of government schools are just as loud about wanting the government involved in church schools.

What does that have to do with a Catholic school rejecting over a century of Catholic social teaching about unions?

FTA:  Yet, regardless of how the law views this dispute, Duquesne suggestion that its Catholic affiliation entitles it to ignore the right of workers to organize would probably come as a tremendous shock to the Catholic Church itself. Catholic canon law calls upon employers to "observe meticulously also the civil laws concerning labor and social policy, according to the principles handed on by the Church" and to "pay a just and decent wage to employees so that they are able to provide fittingly for their own needs and those of their dependents." Similarly, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops proclaimed last year that "[o]ur Church has long taught that unions are 'an indispensable element of social life, especially in modern industrialized societies' . . . and are examples of the traditional Catholic principles of solidarity and subsidiarity in action."

Mater et Magistra and Populorum progressio carry a life sentence in Azkaban nowadays. It's not 1716 anymore, subtard.
